Albany Homicide Victim Identified

Albany Homicide

Albany police have now identified the man found shot to death on Clinton Street on Sunday afternoon. 

Police say two men approached Damien Sanders, and challenged him to a fight.

Sanders evidently told them he didn't want to, but the men pulled him from the car he was in, and began beating him.

Sanders pulled a knife, and one of the two men shot him to death. 

Sanders had just been released from prison after doing a 20 year sentence for manslaughter. 

His death is Albany's second homicide of the year. 

No suspects in the case so far.
